Krauss-Maffei Wegmann acquires WFEL
Krauss-Maffei Wegmann has announced that it has taken over UK company WFEL, the military and civil mobile bridging systems provider based in Stockport Cheshire. The company made the announcement in a 23 May, 2012 statement.
WFEL bridges are used in places where other opportunities for crossing terrain, obstacles and bodies of water have been destroyed. The self-supporting structures can span up to 46 metres with a maximum load capacity of 125 metric tons.
According to Krauss-Maffei Wegmann, around 40 governments, including the US, UK and Switzerland, number among the global WFEL portfolio customers.
The takeover will see the WEFL product range absorbed into the Krauss-Maffei Wegmann portfolio.
